Subject: What if they gave a war and nobody came?
This film differs from all the WWII horror fighting films I have seen. It displays a tenderness not found in run of the mill war films. It was a tender and I must say a loving look at what human beings are capable of under extreme circumstances where even the so called enemy has soul and compassion. I am a grown 70 year old man and I cried profusely at the ending. A great relief war film you will enjoy if you have a heart!

Subject: Internment Japanese Style
What made this film so interesting is the fact that it came out in 1950 so soon after the horror of the Japanese Occupation, and conveys a convincing authenticity. I knew nothing of Agnes Keith until visiting Sandakan in November 2009. The lovely spacious house that the Keiths had lived in,built for the tropics, is today a museum. After the war Agnes dug up writings she had buried in the grounds of the camp. Also the family of three made a point every Sunday of going over to the beach side of the island in Sandakan Bay where they were first interned to enjoy themselves.

Subject: Sound comes back
At about 106 or 107 minutes in I noticed the sound appeared synched more or less properly.
Even though, the sound went out for such a while it is a moving experience to see the how like the nazi the Japanese were.
It explains why I couldn't even look at Japanese products for so many years without getting sick.
The new made in America Japanese cars I believe has started to swing me. American Japanese interment camps during the war never had such a bad reputation, as these Japanese camps where Europeans and American civilians were kept in conquered territory.

Subject: Good movie, bad transfer
The movie looks great, but there's a defect on the sound track of the DivX version about a third of the way in - just noise for a couple of minutes, then after that the sound track resumes, but remains minutes out of synch.
